The cats get treated with Frontline every month, we'd switched from Advantage a few years ago because it stopped working, but it seems the Frontline has stopped working also. I gave the little boy Capstar and Frontline about 3 weeks ago (on the same day) as advised by his vet, and it worked for a little while, but in the meantime the house was still infested. Little girl is much more fastidious and the Frontline seems to still work for her - but I'm still finding dander on her (although no fleas), when the Frontline should still be working. I used the flea comb on him tonight and pulled at least 18 fleas off of him - although I didn't find a single flea on her, I did find several on myself.
We have hardwood floors, so it's not like they're hiding in carpeting. My best guess is they're hiding in any fabric - the couch, the curtain, the mattress. Other than vacuuming, what can I do to these things to get rid of the fleas? I'm going to load everything that can be washed into the washer AGAIN tomorrow (sheets, blankets, anything they sleep on), but that obviously hasn't solved the problem the last 2 times I've done it - and I obviously can't fit the couch in the washing machine.
Flea bomb is not an option - I'm 36 weeks pregnant (and even if I weren't, it wouldn't be an option).
I'm really at my wits end here. I'm ready to shave the cats, but I know that's not going to solve the problem of the infestation in the house.
So I guess ultimately there are two questions here -
1- what can I do/give/put on the cat to keep the fleas off of him, since Frontline and Advantage neither one are working?
2- what can I do to the house to get rid of the infestation that is eating me alive (they like me a lot more than they like DH)?
